In advanced Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), patients with high bone fracture risk due to osteoporosis, it is difficult to measure spinal bone mineral density (BMD) because of maintaining proper posture. This study began with the idea that if we diagnose and manage osteoporosis by predicting spinal BMD through easily testable radial BMD, we could prevent fracture and improve quality of life in DMD patients. In 61 DMD patients aged 20 years or older who were admitted to Gangnam Severance Hospital from April 2013 to May 2015, radial BMD and spinal BMD were measured to compare their Z-scores. In 45 patients, the z-score was less than -2.0 in spinal BMD defined as osteoporosis. And the optimal range of Z-score in the radius was -5.2 to -5.0 (sensitivity 78.9%, specificity 71.4%). Only through the radius BMD, spinal BMD can be predicted and we suggest appropriate times for treatments.
